Chhatra Sansad in association with Indu Blood Bank is organising a Plasma Donation Drive across Vadodara until we defeat corona. Rich in antibodies, the plasma will be collected from COVID-19 recovered patients needed to fight off the virus. The collected plasma will then be distributed by the VMC to the hospitals currently housing COVID-19 patients.
The Plasma, which will be collected in the coming weeks will help save countless lives. All patients who will have received this antibody rich plasma will now have a much greater chance of recovery and return to normalcy. Numerous lives of not only patients, but also Frontline warriors could have been saved if only they had access to Plasma Donations.
CS informed that more than 3500 Pandals have joined forces with them in this Campaign. The Pandals will serve as registration points for prospective plasma donors and will also be part of the awareness Campaign by distributing flyers and brochures in English, Hindi and Gujarati in their respective areas.
The Social Media posts will include facts and figures related to specific cities, States and Countries around the globe of fatalities, currently undergoing treatment and cured patients. The data will also compare other cities with Vadodara to get a comprehensive idea about the pandemic with respect to the Nation.
On top of the Social Media Awareness campaign, the CS team will also hold weekly podcasts and webinars with survivors of COVID-19, Plasma Donors, Healthcare Workers, City officials, Police personnel and other essential workers to get their experiences straight to the general population and help the public take better care of themselves and their fellow citizens.
This will result in a true Print and Electronic Awareness Campaign, ensuring maximum promulgation of information amongst the masses. Chhatra Sansad has appointed area wise Ambassadors to oversee the coordination between patients’ and their families, plasma donors and healthcare workers of their appointed areas to ease the burden off of Government officials and help Society get back to normalcy as soon as possible.
The plasma donors will be donating a life to others and Chhatra Sansad along with Indu Blood bank will give each Donor a Letter of Appreciation, Corona Warrior Tag, dedicated Social Media posts honouring their contributions and News Articles about the same. We will also be conducting antibody tests of the general population in hopes of finding other people capable of becoming Plasma Donors. The more plasma donors we find, the greater is the chance of recovery of currently critical patients and their subsequent return to their own lives and routine, said team CS.
No fee/charge will be taken from any patient or donor in this entire process.
